Anyone planning to chop down trees illegally would be well advised to leave the heavy equipment at home.
The Fuerza Pública said that four men in Guatuso did not. So when they were caught, police confiscated a tractor as well as a saw.
Police said the men were encountered cutting trees along the Río Samen. Police said the men had no permission to do this, as required by the forestry law.
Neighbors heard the activity and turned them in, police said. Also confiscated was wood that had been taken from other felled trees, police said.
